Music That Makes Me Move

We made it to Friday! As I continue to navigate my way through this new blogging adventure, I’m toying with the idea of keeping Friday’s posts short and sweet with a quick hit list regarding some fitness-related topic.  For the first of these installments, I offer some of my favorite workout tunes that keep me moving either on the elliptical machine or as I hit the floor for some resistance training and core work.

Laura’s Top 10 Favorite Cardio Jams:

“On the Floor” Jennifer Lopez (feat. Pitbull)

“Chemistry” Velvet

“Around You” Jes

“Blow” Ke$ha

“Shut It Down” Pitbull (feat. Akon)

“Inner Sanctum” Blue

“Alright” Red Carpet

“Sorry” Madonna

“Judas” Lady GaGa

“I’m Into You” Jennifer Lopez (feat. Lil Wayne)

Laura’s Top 10 Resistance Training Tunes:

“Wherever I May Roam” Metallica

“The Fire” The Roots & John Legend

“The Game” Disturbed

“Let It Rock” Kevin Rudolf & Lil Wayne

“Shake That” Eminem

“Four Minutes” Madonna (feat. Justin Timberlake)

“Do What’s Good For Me” 2 Unlimited

“Bumpy Flight Home” Oakenfold

“Stagefright” Def Leppard

“Crazy on You” Heart

Obviously, I like a wide variety of music. (Note: these are only a handful of songs featured in my “Workout Mix” playlist.) You may love or hate any or all of the songs listed above, but I figured you could at least give some unknown titles a search and a listen and decide if they’re worthy to be a part of your iTunes library.

On a low-energy day, sometimes just turning up the right heart-pounding beats can help kickstart your adrenaline and get you into the right mood to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!

  1. Laura thanks so much for this new play list. 90% of the songs I did not have in my iPod workout playlist. I’ve started a play list to pump me up and get me in the mood to work out. My problem isn’t working out, it’s actually getting up and doing it. It’s an on going struggle but I’m trying my best.

    • Hi Yisell, Glad I was able to offer some new motivation for your workouts! I completely understand how just getting up and getting moving is tough – I have days I am in no mood to exercise. Try and remember how good you feel after you get moving and especially how those endorphins make you feel after you’ve sweated it out and burned those calories. It’s what gets me to move my butt on my laziest days. Keep me posted – and if you have any questions, let me know!
